  • Character: What you do even when no one is looking

    Joey Menendez
    As we look to prepare our students for independence and success in college, one critical component of our work is the development of a student’s character. We understand the pressures student will face once they walk on their future college campuses. They will face pressure from their peers to participate in activities they may not necessarily agree with in order to “be in the group” or they may succumb to academic pressures and compromise their integrity by failing to do their own work. I can go on and on about the potential opportunities to make poor judgment our young adults will be presented with once they leave the halls of the Simpson Upper School, but we focus on providing an educational experience that promotes the skill development that will positon them to act boldly in those moments, and to exercise a strong moral compass. It is our hope the lessons learned here will help them to make wise and good decisions that will speak to their character more than anything else.

Our definition of innovation has come to be synonymous with new ideas or products that come with all the bells and whistles and may look like inventions because we have never seen them in the market before. In fact, innovation is the application of better solutions or methods to meet new requirements or needs of society.
